Get Participant Counts


  1. I have created one User App which use oAuth to get permission to receive meetings and recording.
  2. I use NodeJs and RestAPIs, webhook to get meetings and receive recordings,
  3. I am able to download the audio and video files using webhook.
  4. Now I need number of attendees / participants, how do I get it?

I see a report API, but when I tried to use it, get scope not defined,

**Which App Type (OAuth/Webhook)

This was the error I got
Invalid access token, does not contain scopes: [report:read:admin, zms:report:read]”. But I don’t see any report scope in oAuth configuration to enable.

Hey @aruna1997,

What is the name of your app? Happy to look into this for you.


Hi Tommy,
Thanks for your time.
RAFIKI-AI is a oAuth App that gets permission to access meetings and recordings. I am able to get the meetings and recordings, but I also need participants, not sure how to get it.

How do I make this app shareable within our circle for unit testing.


Hey @aruna1997,

Have you tried using any of the following participant endpoints:

As for sharing your app, you can do so with users under your Zoom account, or if you want to test with users outside your Zoom account you can request a beta test url:


User doesn’t need to register to participate in the meeting and our User App is registered under a pro license account.

This is what I tried
/report/meetings/${meetingId}/participants. I got
Invalid access token, does not contain scopes: [report:read:admin, zms:report:read]”.

I don’t know where to enable this scope, I don’t see any scope to enable. image

Hey @aruna1997,

For user level OAuth apps, you can use the Get Past Meeting Participant endpoint.
